Comprehensive Pet Allergy Assessment

The allergy and dermatology services at Westside Pet Hospital will help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

At each appointment, we’ll examine your pet from nose to tail, looking for anything out of the ordinary. We’ll then create a customized preventative care strategy that will include vaccines, parasite control, nutrition and weight management, and anything else we deem relevant.

To help your companion feel better, we must identify precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to tell what’s wrong just by looking at your pet, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, skin scrapings, and biopsies provide us with the answers we need to move forward with treatment.

Some Dermatological Issues We Assist With

Allergies (Food and/or Environmental)

Infections (Acute or Chronic)

Hormonal Disorders

Autoimmune Diseases


Skin Cancer

Finally, annual visits give all of us at Westside Pet Hospital a chance to truly get to know you and your pet. Developing a relationship with you and forging a bond with your animal friend is integral to the care we provide.

Once we’ve diagnosed the underlying problem, the next step is determining how to treat it best. Depending on the situation, we may prescribe something as simple as a topical cream. More complex conditions may call for a longer-term strategy or involve a combination of multiple treatment methods.

Excessive Scratching

Scabbing or Flaking of the Skin

Hot Spots

Shedding More Than Usual

Biting, Chewing or Licking at the Affected Area

Bumps or Lumps on or Under the Skin

If you notice any of the above signs, it’s time to schedule an appointment. Give us a call, and we can help your four-legged friend live a more comfortable life.
